Two Things You Need to Do This Summer
Every May I give myself new goals for summer. Little challenges that will help me have the best one yet! This year I’m teaming up with Kohl’s to share the two things you need to do this summer and my top tips to help pick YOUR endless summer goals!
I’m not just talking about health and fitness goals, I mean ANYTHING that will help to truly make you happy. Goals that will allow you to enjoy your summer and feel totally fulfilled come August. Yes – these usually do have something to do with your health and wellness because, let’s be honest, when you are staying active and eating healthy you feel a million times better. More relaxed, rejuvenated and ready to take on all the craziness of fall.
Plus the better weather means endorphins are high and your possibilities are seriously endless.
So here are the two things you need to do this summer when setting your goals…
You need to pick ONE thing you LOVE to do, and plan to do more of it!
Life gets so busy. It’s easy to let our hobbies and “extras” get pushed aside, but summer is the time to put that to an end! The days are longer, the air is warmer and it’s time for you to have some fun!
So what do I love and want more of? Tennis! Ryan is SO good and I want to get on his level… or at least be able to keep up with him. We have the best time playing, but it definitely doesn’t happen enough (aka ever). Not to mention, adding a new exercise or sport into your routine has tons of fitness benefits. When you keep your body guessing or working new muscles, it responds in the best way…getting stronger!
My goal is to plan a tennis date for us once a week. We always have amazing brainstorming sessions on the courts and I love that he gets to share something he is passionate about with me. It starts with making it a priority and these tennis dates are officially on my calendar!
The second thing you need to do this summer is to find something NEW you want to try and make it happen!
While it can be intimidating to try new things, the happiness rush you get from them is unmatched. You may be missing out on something you love or are really good at…but unless you try, you will never know. Overcoming your fears, hesitations or insecurities gives you new motivation, not just for the thing you’re trying, but in all areas of life!
I grew up surfing almost every single day. In high school and college I slowly stopped. I had more important things to focus on like homework. Just kidding…mostly just boys and my 3 hours on the waves was really getting in the way hah.
Over the years I’ve talked about wanting to start back up, but I just keep forgetting and putting it off. Now it’s been nearly 6 years since I’ve been actively surfing, but it’s time for a change!
It may not technically be something “new” but in some ways it is. It’s been so long and I don’t know how the whole “it’s just like riding a bike” thing applies here. The point is, I want to challenge myself and paddling out again will do just that.
You guys know I almost exclusively shop online and I was pretty pumped that Kohl’s had everything I needed to make these goals happen! Buying my new outfits might just be the perfect reminder that I am committed to making these goals a habit!

All right so those are mine. What will it be for you? I want you to take a minute and write down a BUNCH of things you’ve wanted to do more of and things you’ve always wanted to try. Pick one of each and make sure at least 1 of them is something that will also help you reach your #TeamLSF goals!
